Great. Just Great.

Update- My mind is so shot that I thought today was Wednesday alllllll day. So in place of Wednesday below insert Tuesday. Thanks. 

It seems I have forgotten how to blog. I have nothing to talk about. I don't cook anymore because raw meat makes me nauseous. And the idea of standing at a stove stirring makes me want to get all stabby. I go out to eat a lot now and have had a lot of really great food. After my plate is licked clean I always think well this could have been a good blog post. If I would have taken a picture before inhaling my fajitas that is. All I think about day and night is philly cheesesteak sandwiches, fajitas, quesadillas and SNO CONES! I now live and breathe shaved ice. Yep now I'm out of stuff to write so here is a picture of me at 15 weeks. 25 weeks left.

Since I am already out of things to write here is a copy of the e-mail I sent to my mom.....

15 weeks today. In 5 more weeks I will be half way done. It has flown by! Well flown by minus the puking, headaches, constipation, huge sore nipples, sore legs and feet and I am now experiencing dizziness. Super. Oh and my belly button is almost an outtie. Its gross. Happy Wednesday! 

Happy Wednesday Lovies!!!!!!!!
